Lost 1000 PTS
« on: February 13, 2014, 05:59:55 PM »

User PTS trader had pM'ed me in regards to purchase of 1000 PTS from me
I had readily agreed for a rate the two of us were fine with
He had then went on to arrange escrow for the transaction
I readily waited - until the second user linked in the beginning of this thread PM'ed me.
It looked like  a fake account of Favdesu
Sadly I readily thought it is the real favdesu and sent the cash
The transaction id is c1028f6ea63729ff972102af23616936e60b191f2beec8352b4584f7bc947a30-000


I have lost 12,000 dollars in the deal and its more than I can afford to lose.
it was money my business urgently needed and am beyond depressed.
Words won't express how I feel right now.

I feel if admin and board members tried a bit more- maybe this scam would've been avoided, but I blame my own lack of patience and background checks for the loss.


I am looking for every detail I can get on these 2 accounts.
If possible, I request for ip's, other details to be made available to me.
I offer 500 USD to any user who can help me trace down this scumbag.
I will take this dude to court and have him filed for fraud

That really sucks =[

There was another thread like this earlier, using a different fake favdesu:
https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=1994.0

I banned both, I think these are the IPs:

37.221.171.236  pts_trader
81.89.96.89        favdesu`   (NOT favdesu proper)

Is there any more information I can have?
I work with some of the darkest of blackhatters and have access to a few investigative agencies - by all means I will trace them down and teach a lesson.

I wish someone covered me :/

Turns out both are proxy/vpn IP's
I can try accessing the logs / server and see if I can do anything

What else would be useful? I don't have that much information.
Their hostnames are  "luxemburg.gtor.org" and "ddos-optimized.com". Both using mailinator emails.

Chat logs with other users
Can i have chat logs of all 4 of his accounts?
That would be a good place to start with

Mailinator email... looks like a newb already

You should ping Amazon, I don't think I have access to chat logs

I'm sorry to hear about your loss in PTS. But seriously, how could you ever be so naive? Especially when it's your business at stake here. Also a fake scamming Favdesu has been reported before as I remember right.

Everyone makes mistakes :/
I lost approximately 20 BTC in a single scam
I have a method to get 10k worth server credits. If i could get a few buyers for it I'd be sorted.

Well I hope you can get some PTS back but I wouldn't count on it, let alone a court trial. Better aim your time and resources on getting new coins or like you said find some buyers for your server methods.

It is hard for admin/mod to find out a fake ID that never post. The trading board is not accessible for newbie accounts. And in PM, it should be easy to see the title and post number to find out fake ID.

I am sorry for your lost. Please send me an email [email protected] and see what I can help you.

Sorry to hear about your loss!   I think we should shut down trading buy/sell requests on this forum because we have exchanges that can facilitate that.   

Is there any value for on forum transactions?

Hmm... there were some trades for non-crypto and maybe it would be good for Very Large trades

I typically handle 20-50 BTC trades and back in the day lighthouse used to help with that
lately we have noone credible willing to do that and thats what resulted in my bad experience.
